About Me

I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Hi and Happy Tuesday to all,

I hope you're having a good day. I'm still fighting this cold that I picked up on my last work trip. It's getting pretty tiresome too! My stomach muscles are sore from the coughing. I decided to just hang out at home and do office work today thinking that the downtime would help. I need to be in Los Angeles the rest of this week and it's going to be some long days too. What's keeping me going is that after Friday, I'm off for the next two weeks. Woot-Woot!

Claire is the hostess this week over at the Paper Players with a fun Valentine's Day theme challenge. I pulled out some newish Lawn Fawn Valentine's Day stamps to make my card.

This is a pretty simple card and all of the stamps and dies are Lawn Fawn. I cut the center of the brown patterned paper with a Lawn Fawn Stitched Heart die, then again using the blue striped paper. I glued them down to a kraft card base. The S'mores are stamped with Memento tuxedo black, colored with Copics and cut out with the set dies. The greeting is stamped with SU Strawberry Slush ink.

Here's the inside:

I used some Expresso Dimensional Liquid Pearls for the melted chocolate on the S'mores and red Liquid Pearls for the heart in the sentiment for my embellishments. Sweet and simple!

Thanks for stopping in today,
